Hello everyone.

I am having a problem with my printer drivers getting loaded by users.  
I setup as domain admin user and am the only one who can add a printer 
and have it autoload the drivers.  i have everything setup the way 
multipule website say to set it up.  I have a user of the Domain Users 
group who has *SePrintOperatorPrivilege* for thier user name.
When they double click the printer to connect/ install it, I get a 
message that the drivers cannot be found.  looking in the logs I see a 
permissions error but I cannot for the life of me see why I get that. 
I am setup as a PDC.

        use client driver = no
        default devmode = Yes
        browseable = no
        public = yes
        writable = no

        comment = Printer Drivers
        path = /share/scripts/cups/drivers
        browseable = yes
        #Valid users = @Domain Users, @Domain Admins
        guest ok = yes
        read only = yes
        write list = karl, @Domain Admins

Any ideas on what to do?  Thanks.
